During the Summer we take advantage of the fantastic adventure activity outdoor playground that is the Brecon Beacons National Park. We don’t just sit around all day on a deckchair sunning ourselves we’re a bit more active when we have such magnificent waterfalls, climbing, canyoning, caving, hill walking and canoeing venues to use. So if you are looking for something different to try in 2014 then don’t sit on a deckchair all day get up close and personal with the Welsh countryside by trying outdoor adventure activities with Adventure Britain. View our video to see why

Awesome Sight and Sound of a River in Flood in Waterfall Country
This is the awesome site and sound of the River (Afon) Mellte in the Brecon Beacons National in flood. This river is situated in the famous waterfall country on the southern edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park. There is so much water flowing over these famous waterfalls that even if you have walked this area yourself you may not recognise them.
In the video you’ll see Sgwd Clun Gwyn, Sgwd Clun Gwyn Isaf, Sgwd y Pannwr and Sgwd y Eira each one famous and spectacular in their own right. The video was taken during one of our adventure walks on 5th August 2013. We sue this area for many of our activities such as canyoning and caving and you can see why by the quality of the scenary. However there was rather too much water to do any canyoning with the river in this state. (more…)
